In 2022, the GFCBA ramped up our fundraising efforts with 3 events. Our Glory Days 80’s Jam in February, our first
annual Trail Trot in honor of Donnie Teague in May, and our second annual Big Backyard Poker Run in July, raised over
$10,000! We are so thankful for our supportive members and community for the success of this year’s fundraising efforts.
These monies will be used to match grant money for community projects and town beautification.

Main Street Forest City hosts 4 annual festivals in which you can participate and advertise for your business. Easter on
Main, Trail Town Festival, Halloween on Main, and Christmas on Main draw many local residents and visitors to
downtown Forest City. Plenty of potential new customers!

We are currently over 100 members strong & ask for your support so that we may continue to work on your behalf for growth and community achievement.
